Words to Live By

“People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you’re successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind. Think big anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People really need help but may attack if you help them. Help people anyway. Give the world the best you have and you might get hurt. Give the world the best you’ve got anyway cause in the end, it wasn’t between you and them anyway.”

Mother Teresa

    Such powerful words, yet so true..

    Sometimes I feel like I do alot of “good” things in vain, but like the quote says, I gotta realize the REAL reason I`m doing the things I`m doing, and saying the things I`m saying.

    Thanks for the encouraging quote!
